“MCing is about expression”, Joker states in no uncertain terms, “it needs to come from you”. A potent mixture of talent, vision and dynamism, Joker Starr is ready to add a new facet to hip hop music. His debut album “Blood-Ren” can be described as having a Golden New Era hiphop sound that appeals to the boom bap purist whilst ticking all the right boxes for the commercial hip hop listener.
Guest features include Micall Parkinsun, Sonny Jim and Genesis Elijah. The producers are Jehst, Jazz T and Zygote, Scratch Professor, Apatight, Tofelees, Soliheen, G-Man and Sound Species.
The Slough Town native’s debut album includes the single Hip Hop Transition with production by the legendary UK rapper Jehst, the Apatight produced The Place Called Slough Town video, set the basis for the sound of the album. Soulful neck snapping beats, heartfelt concept driven lyrics, a slight commercial crossover appeal that makes Blood-Ren cover all bases needed to make a quality album.
Radio play has been received on Kiss, BBC 1xtra, and Choice.
